The burning wind turbine at Derrykeighan, a few miles east of Coleraine

This striking image was captured by an engineer from Northern Ireland Electricity, after he attended the scene of a burning wind turbine in Co Antrim.

The blaze took place around the Castlecat Road in a part of rural north Antrim called Derrykeighan, a few miles east of Coleraine.

Two fire engines from Coleraine were dispatched to the scene at around 8.30am, but the fire brigade said that they did not need to take any action when they arrived.

Northern Ireland Electricity staff attended to make sure the electricity supply was isolated.

They said they could not reveal the operator of the turbine, which is believed to be a single unit, not part of a wider wind farm.

In January 2015, a wind turbine collapsed following a malfunction in Screggagh, Co Tyrone.
